Hometown: I was born in Spanish Fork, Utah. I've lived all over but the mountains keep telling me SLC is my hometown.
What is a day at work like? Every day is unique. I love brainstorming ideas and crafting copy and designs that make people feel. Technology has changed everything, but marketing is still about people. If my work resonates with someone, I'm doing things right.
What do you like most about your job? I completely lose myself in work...so days fly.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? Iceland. My grandfather is from there and I'd love to go soak up the motherland.
Tell us a bit about your family (furry friends are family, too) I have eight nieces and nephews I call my kids. They're grown and having kids of their own now, and being a great aunt is the bomb. I also have two felines I adore.
Who is your favorite author? I can't possibly pick just one, but I love the way Pat Conroy "paints" with words.
What is your favorite website? (Google doesn't count) Brain Pickings www.brainpickings.org - they curate "interestingness."
Tell us your favorite quote "Do not seek illumination unless you seek it as a man whose hair is on fire seeks a pond." – Sri Ramakrishna
What is your favorite sport or team? I love all sports. I'm a huge Braves fan, but have a soft spot for the Twins and the Giants. For football it's the Vikings and 49ers. I worshiped Bjorn Borg for years, but Swiss boy Roger Federer is now my tennis love (pun intended).
What is your favorite board game? Scattergories! I'm invincible and you will lose.
What is your greatest extravagance (or guilty pleasure)? Handbags and Coca-Cola. By age two I was foraging in my mom's closet for handbags, which I hung over the handlebars of my tricycle. Coke over crushed ice is nectar of the Gods.
Who are your favorite characters in history? Hawkeye and Chingachgook of the Mohican Tribe (I love Native American history) and Johannes Gutenberg, who created movable type – the precursor to all mass communications.
How would you spend your ideal evening? Camping in the mountains and falling asleep to the sound of a gurgling river.
